Shin Bet thwarts mass restaurant poisoning

Two Palestinian employees detained mere days before they planned to lace food at Ramat Gan grill bar with tasteless, odorless toxin

The thwarting of an alarming terror plot was cleared for publication on Thursday, almost three weeks after a joint Shin Bet and police operation led to the arrest of two Palestinian employees of the ‘Grill Express’ restaurant in Ramat Gan.

The men, Eihab Abu Rial and Anas Salum, both 21-year-old residents of the West Bank city of Nablus, had planned to lace dishes served at the establishment with a powerful toxin without odor or taste, in the hopes of killing as many patrons as possible.

The two did not have working permits and were residing in Israel illegally. While in Nablus, they had been recruited to the al-Aqsa Martyr’s Bridges, the military wing of Fatah, under the guidance and funding of Hizbullah.

The men were arrested by police investigators following information obtained by the Shin Bet, several
short days before they planned to carry out the attack.

  1. What is with dude’s eye? Seriously. He looks like a throwback (waaaay back) on the evolutionary scale.

  2. Sometimes lex talionis (the law of equal retribution, “an eye for an eye”) sounds more fair than our so-called civilized punishments. I could be persuaded that a fair sentence for these two would be to consume the poison they were going to feed the patrons of the Grill Express…

  3. By the way – “bomb-making experiment gone wrong” reminds me of the recently-reported “gas leak and small explosion” at Khushab Nuclear Plant in Pakistan that killed two people. Is there any way we’re ever going to know if the reports are accurate (“undergoing routine maintenance” blah, blah) or is there a chance that this was (as a cynical person might suspect) another demonstration of Darwin’s theory as applied to Islamic scientific research?
